Hello 2015

Hello again. It’s been awhile since I’ve written here on the blog. Honestly as I write this I can’t even remember when I really wrote last. I need to go back and read my last post. A year of change will do that to your mind I think.

How can we be in 2015? (I actually started this post as an end of 2014 post, but the time got away from me to finish it.)

In some ways 2014 was a year that seemed to crawl along. And yet it also whizzed past.

I guess that’s how they all are I suppose. But this one especially.

I’m still not sure I have found a word for 2015 yet. Usually a word has found me by now. There is one that is there, but I’m not sure it’s the word. At least not yet. Maybe this year will be different and the word will develop over time.

But my mind drifts back to my word for 2014. Nuach. Rest.

As with any of the past words that have found me this one was hard.

It’s hard to rest in His process when you are waiting.

Did I pass the year with my one word with flying colors? Maybe. There were moments of frustration and exhaustion. Then there were others of peace and rest. Even in those frustrating moments I knew I could still rest in His plan.

As November arrived, we were unpacking in our new home. Blessed beyond what we could have ever imagined. Still it blows my mind how God answered every prayer and more. Of course life changes are filled with nervousness, but how can you be nervous when you can see God’s hand over every part? Just so very thankful.

So hello 2015. I’m looking forward to what you hold. Because as sure as I know anything I know there is extraordinary in the everyday ordinary if we just look, and I know God will do more than we can possibly imagine.
